Title variants
Sepphoris– the Pearl of Galilee– in history and tradition (to the Arab conquest)
Languages of publication
Sepphoris is, after Tiberias, the greatest city of ancient Galilee, and was for several years the capital. Its splendor reached its highest at the turn of the 1st century B.C and 1st century A.D. and in the 2nd and 3rd centuries A. D. Still, the city does not appear in the New Testament, though many other cities of Galilee are mentioned. This paper is a synthetic approach to the history and tradition of ancient and early medieval Sepphoris. It is not a typical reconstruction of the history of the city. The place of Sepphoris in the history of Galilee and the Jewish and Early Christian tradition was important, although there are few historical sources confirming this fact.
